Leonard Hankerson says he'll be off crutches early

Leonard Hankerson’s health after missing the last part of the 2011 season with a hip injury is one of the big questions of this offseason. It looks like there is some good news there. 

Hankerson tweeted the following this afternoon from his @HankTime85 account:

Finishing up with rehab, got some great news, I'll be off the crutches a whole week earlier... #Yesss

At the NFL owners meetings last month, Mike Shanahan said that Hankerson should be able to participate in offseason activities by about June 1. It’s not clear if the fact that he will be off crutches a week earlier means that he can take part on OTA’s any earlier. Regardless, being able to get off of crutches early is a good sign that his rehab is coming along well. 

Hankerson did let us know that he still has a lot of work to do in this followup tweet:

Still go ways 2 go, but off the crutches is a plus
